The UK National Case-Control Study Group has examined the relationship between smoking (both own smoking and passive), alcohol consumption and caffeine consumption and the risk of breast cancer.
A total of 755 women with breast cancer diagnosed before the age of 36, each with an age-matched general population control, were interviewed, and detailed information on reproductive, contraceptive and medical history, personal attributes and habits were obtained.
Additional data on passive smoking were obtained from a subgroup of women.
There was no evidence of a statistically significant difference in breast cancer risk between subjects who had ever smoked as much as one cigarette per day and those who had not [relative risk (RR)=1.01,95% confidence interval (Cl) 0.81-1.26].
